Sizing up using a tape measure or relying on guess work could lead to buyers choosing smaller screens unnecessarily, according to Sony
Sony UK has announced an online tool that allows TV buyers to place a marker in a room, take a photo and then virtually try out different sized screens via an enhanced image
A marker template is downloaded, printed off and placed in the position where you'd like your new TV to go
With the marker in place, take a photo of the space you'd like your TV to fill and then upload it to Sony's TV Size Guide tool - which will then augment the image with a chosen screen so you can size up which is best for you
Augmented reality (AR) seems to be touching almost every part of our lives at the moment. It's bringing arcade games to life, keeping back seat kids entertained during long journeys, offering on-the-spot translations and helping us to see the world in a different light. Now, Sony UK has developed an online tool that uses AR to help users visualize a new big screen TV in their home without needing to resort to a tape measure, or just leaving it to guess work and hoping for the best.
